Thanks for the opinions. As far as oversizing is concerned my unit has a thermostat and adjust the flame accordingly. It does not seem to be a problem. It could use a cleaning. I will follow the manufacturers instructions and clean it properly. I would not want to depend on the unit to functions daily for my primary heat source but it seems to work fine for auxilary heat in the basement.
I highly recommend that you purchase and install a carbon monoxide alarm!
